Power companies, marinas, and waterfront communities along Virginia's coast and tributaries are not taking any chances with Hurricane Matthew. Models used to track the storm keep changing, making it hard to predict the impact on Virginia.

Matthew's track has changed dramatically since Tuesday, when models showed the center of the hurricane off the Virginia Coast. Eric Seymour is a hydrologist with the National Weather Service in Wakefield.

The day after Virginia was battered by at least three confirmed tornadoes, Governor Terry McAuliffe visited the hardest-hit regions of the state to assess the damage.

The governor visited Appomattox—where one of the state’s four tornado deaths was recorded as a funnel cloud left an 8-to-10 mile path of debris, and injured seven. About 100 structures were damaged-- 20 severely-- including some that were flattened.

A flash flood watch is in effect for Virginia through Saturday night.

The National Weather Service says rain will become widespread and increase in intensity over saturated ground, increasing the risk of landslides.

Rainfall amounts are expected to total 2 to 5 inches in some places. And that's well before any possible impacts from Hurricane Joaquin moving up the East Coast.

A gale warning also has been posted for coastal areas.

Gov. Terry McAuliffe says Virginia "dodged a bullet" with Hurricane Joaquin.
